View all copies of this ISBN edition:

The modern image of the peasant originated in Italy, in the 1820s, in the work of Leopold Robert, a Swiss, and Leopold Robert, a Frenchman, whose success created a vogue for the peasant genre, somewhat idealised. From the 1840s onwards a more realistic school of painters dedicated to peasant imagery arose in France, Germany and Vienna. This study embraces the work of artists to the end of the 19th century from countries including England, Norway, Holland and Hungary
